This Scouting adventure is only possible thanks to our adult volunteers who run the group.  We are always looking for parents who are interested in helping to run the pack and help the scout group.

If you would like to help please talk to the leaders. Click here to see some FAQ’s

We also ask that all parents sign up to a parent rota.

Scout Association Training for Volunteers

Adult volunteers are at the heart of Scouting, and we hope that you will get every bit as much out of it as you put in. Scouting is not only about young people, but also about the development of adults within the Movement.

To support adults in Scouting, the Association provides a comprehensive programme of training to build on existing skills and knowledge and develop new competencies. Some elements of training can count towards externally-recognised qualifications, and within the movement there are also awards to recognise dedication to training and outstanding service. Click here to find out more about Scout Leader Training.
